What does a status of "Pending" mean. It has been over 24 hours and the status has not changed.
It means an administrator has to approve it. I've been waiting around a week on one Hub. Needless to say, I do not like the new system.
Hubpages has to review the hub. Hopefully they will be finished with their review soon.
JThomp42 is correct. An administrator has to approve the hub. Usually I have to wait at least two days before a new hub is featured.
According to a post made today by an administrator in the forums, every time you edit your pending hub, it resets the 24 hour pending period. So if you want your hub to show up 24 hours after you post it, don't touch it again until it's no longer pending. The post is here for those who are curious:

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks. New pages do not get indexed for days or weeks. This causes lost traffic and lost...

There is a lot of anger and/or frustration relating to the 'pending' system and most of it is down to the fact that it's not clear why there are exceptions - this is justified and there should be open-ness. (Note this only is aimed at new hubs, not hubs that become un-featured later)One way to do...

My latest hub is taking way longer than usual to get out of pending status, now in the 49th hour. I did some editing, twice, while it was pending. Does that add on more pending time? I have never waited more than 24 to 36 hrs. It's a recipe hub. I initially made a wine suggestion for the dish but...

My hub "How to Make Crispy Homemade French Fries" has been pending for 45 hours now. Did I do something wrong?
